Suceava Fortress

Suceava is the capital city of the Suceava County, Bukovina, and northeastern Romania. It is situated on a commercial highway that linked the Baltic with the Black Sea.The town of Suceava gained its importance from the presence of the main royal palace which Petru I Musat built here at the end of the XlVth century.
Suceava fortress was built by Petru I Musat at the end of the XlVth century. Stephen the Great (1457-1504) enlarged and strengthened the fortress .The fortress was repeatedly attacked until the XVIIth century when it was destroyed first by the Turks and then by an earthquake.

Voronet Monastery

The Voronet Monastery is possibly the most famous monastery of Romania. It is known throughout the world for its exterior frescoes of bright and intense colours, and for the hundreds of well-preserved figures placed against the renowned azurite background. The church of Voronet that Stephen the Great built included the chancel, the naos with its tower, and the pronaos.

Sucevita Monastery

Sucevita is chronologically the last and greatest monastic ensemble among the painted monasteries in Bukovina, as it has the appearance of a real fortress, with towers, buttresses and watch roads. The fortress structure of the site had a defensive role; it actually prevented the mural paintings (made in 1595-1596) from serious damaging as it happened with frescoes of other painted monasteries.

Moldovita Monastery

Moldovita Monastery that one can we see today dates back to 1532 and is due to ruling prince Petru Rares (1532-1546). It has, like Sucevita, the aspect of a fortress, with imposing towers and high, thick walls (6 m high, 1.2 m wide). According to the architectural tradition set by Stephen the Great, the church has a three-cusped plan, as well as an open porch.
